Larisa Crunțeanu b. 1986

Larisa Crunțeanu is an interdisciplinary artist working between research and speculation. Larisa Crunțeanu studied Photography and Moving Image and is a current PhD candidate at the National University of Arts, Bucharest.

Her practice as performer, video artist and sound collector moves from reality to fiction in an endless conversation with the viewer. Larisa Crunțeanu’s works create contexts in which facts and memories are reactivated, encouraging a shared effort and the emergence of new practices. Many of her projects reflect on the notion of collaboration and the ideas existing behind objects and stories.
